Optimizing the production, maintenance and extension of lexical resources is one the crucial aspects impacting Natural Language Processing (NLP). A second aspect involves optimizing the process leading to their integration in applications. With this respect, we believe that the production of a consensual specification on lexicons can be a useful aid for the(More)
The project LE-SIMPLE is an innovative attempt of building harmonized syntactic-semantic lexicons for 12 European languages, aimed at use in different Human Language Technology applications. SIMPLE provides a general design model for the encoding of a large amount of semantic information, spanning from ontological typing, to argument structure and(More)
Lexical Resources are a critical component for Natural Language Processing applications. However, the high cost of comparing and merging different resources has been a bottleneck to have richer resources with a broad range of potential uses for a significant number of languages. With the objective of reducing cost by eliminating human intervention, we(More)
This paper describes the SemEval 2016 shared task on Aspect Based Sentiment Analysis (ABSA), a continuation of the respective tasks of 2014 and 2015. In its third year, the task provided 19 training and 20 testing datasets for 8 languages and 7 domains, as well as a common evaluation procedure. From these datasets, 25 were for sentence-level and 14 for(More)
The lexical semantic relationships between word pairs are key features for many NLP tasks. Most approaches for automatically classifying related word pairs are hindered by data sparsity because of their need to observe two words co-occurring in order to detect the lexical relation holding between them. Even when mining very large corpora, not every related(More)
PANACEA's objective is to join a number of advanced interoperable tools to build a factory of Language Resources (LR). A production line that automates the stages involved in the acquisition, production, updating and maintenance of the LR required by Machine Translation and other Language Technologies.
The ISLE Computational Lexicon Working Group is committed to the consensual definition of a standardized infrastructure to develop multilingual resources for HLT applications. In particular, the ISLE-CLWG pursues this goal by designing MILE (Multilingual ISLE Lexical Entry), a general schema for the encoding of multilingual lexical information. This has to(More)
